Default How to get stock Android, no Facebook home

Epic win by HTC!

The HTC First is the first HTC phone to run a stock version of Android since the G2, but nobody noticed

Go to app management, clear defaults on Facebook Home and you get a really good phone, running plain stock Android.

That is exactly the reason that I bought a used one on eBay. Delete/disable all the Facebook crap and you get a HTC nexus type phone without the contract at low cost. HTC phones have best camera in my humble opinion. ( as far as androids are concerned)!

Also, since the phone does not have sense, the use of clock widgets and wallpaper programs do not cause problems. An added bonus!

you end up with an htc jelly bean nexus phone, which was copied by the new i phone 5c , as far as the body is concerned.
